About Sydney, Australia :

Sydney on Australia’s east coast is a dream to visit. Great weather, beautiful beaches, delicious international cuisines and a laid-back “no worries, mate” vibe all make Sydney a great destination for singles, couples and families alike. Let our Mombassador plan your trip!

GET TO KNOW MEKHLA

What do you love most about living in Sydney?

Life’s a beach – There are many of them!

Suit to swimsuit- In summer months it is almost customary to hit the beach after work for a swim.

Weather! Some winter days are warmer than summer days in other parts of the world.

What’s one cultural quirk? 

Sydneysiders love to discuss house prices! We also tend to avoid cold-weather clothing until it is absolutely necessary. Men especially persist in wearing shorts even as the temperatures drop into the low teens.

Why is travelling important for the family?

Family travel is important especially being full time working parents. It is the time to (re) connect with each other. I will be seriously considering family holidays with electronic detox in the near future, except for the good old camera of course!

What’s the hardest thing about travelling with kids?

I worry about them falling sick in a foreign country. I try to take all the precautions and so far, so good.

What’s your favourite travel destination of the world?

Asia – we love Bali, Thailand, Malaysia in particular.

What’s on your travel wish list?

South America

What’s one thing that makes travel with kids easier?

I am happy that hotels offer babysitting services. While we spend a lot of time with our son on holiday, it’s always nice for mum and dad to get some time off.

What’s one song on your roadtrip playlist?

Uptown Funk of course!
